In this presentation, we will discuss the geomorphic and ecological value of the riverfront area adjacent to rivers and streams in Massachusetts. We will review basic principals of river and floodplain interactions. We will also discuss some of the various ecosystems that are found within riverfront areas and their habitat services and functions.
